With Wings, She Soars

My precious Angel has wings. Her name is Carrie and she represents a friend who passed away suddenly a few Christmas' ago. When completed, she will be a gift for Carrie's Mom. I can't wait to get her finished.

I stopped in to Corinne's office on Friday to let her know I would be needing some more of the background wool. I wish you could have seen the look of panic on her face. I could see her mind racing to remember of she still had the formula for that piece. Hehehehe I shouldn't laugh but it was pretty funny. I brought in a piece of the original that I hadn't cut up yet. As soon as she saw it I could see the relief wash over her!

So, like an angel herself, she hit the dye pots on Saturday and sent me a text after supper that she had it ready. I think I arrived at her door in less than 10 minutes! The wool wasn't even dry yet!! I took both pieces - you know - just in case. (any excuse) None of these pieces have stayed in the shop long enough for her Mother to even see them. So I posted the photo below so Nancy could see what it looks like. But - the photos don't really give an accurate image. The actual wool is much darker in tone. Lots of navy and deep burgundy with some dark greenish tones.
I hate to say this out loud, but I am starting to feel a bit of a scratchy throat and stuffy nose. Nooooooooo! I don't have time to get sick. After supper I'm heading to the pharmacy and getting a bag full of precautions.


  1. Kim your angel is lovely and I am sure it is going to be love by it's recipient.
    Hope you are able to ward off any sickness.


  2. Your angel is beautiful and what a wonderful gift for your friends mother. It will be her treasure, I'm sure.

  3. God I hope I didn't get you sick from visiting me. I'm liking the wings of the Angel that edging shade worked out well. It will be even better when I can see it in person.

    I can't wait to see that background color cut up and in a project, as I don't have any here again I'll have to re-dye.
